More of This Please

Friday was sunny and warm a lovely change from the last few days of cool, wet conditions.

Despite the cold weather a little part of the garden looked a little tropical as besides our palm deciding to flower for the first time ever our pot grown gunnera next to the palm is forming a flower too. I’m not sure how such a moisture loving plant is surviving in a pot but it is.

I’m hoping that we can get down the allotment this weekend and get some planting done as our cold-frame is full to bursting with young plants ready for the plot.
We've got all sorts of brassicas, broad beans, lettuces, and sweet peas all ready for planting out.

  1. They've got plenty of those (Gunnera)at Benmore in Argyle in their Chilean Garden - Another thing they have is a giant redwood avenue.

    Like you I've got tons of brassicas to plant out - and only so much room to squeeze them into. Life was simple with a three way rotation , but my 5 (six including soft fruit) way rotation is proving difficult contain in a single plot.

  2. Might give the giant redwoods a miss - even in pots!
